Admitted Student Program

Be Your Best. It all starts here.

The career-focused education and Co-op Program you will get at Kettering University has been recognized as one of the best in the country because it focuses on preparing you for a career in your field after graduation. 

Experience what makes our college different and learn more about yourself in both an Admitted Student Program and our Spring Employment Fair.

All admitted students are encouraged to attend; you do not need a deposit to participate. It may feel a bit intimidating—do not worry we are here to help you at every step and provide tools & resources to support you.

Please Note: The March 19th event is in conjunction with the Employment Fair on Monday, March 20th. 

You'll need your Kettering i.d. for registration

A Family sees the Worth of a Kettering Education

A lot has changed at Kettering University since Wayne Walworth graduated in 1955, but one thing has remained constant: the high quality of education. This is why the Mechanical Engineer alumnus recommends the University to anyone who asks and has six family members who followed in his footsteps to attend Kettering.
